Since 1999, Greenhouse Ministries’ goal has been two fold. Our first goal is to move people out of their current situation of hopelessness and help them see their God given potential. Our second goal is to provide an outlet for people in our community to volunteer.

As they served the Murfreesboro community, founders Cliff and Jane Sharp noticed a gap in services to single moms and the working poor. These groups struggled to meet the basic daily needs of their families but worked full-time and made too much money to qualify for any assistance from government programs. Even more than basic needs, Cliff and Jane saw a community with no hope. The Sharps started Greenhouse Ministries to serve those who were being overlooked and underserved and to show them hope.

Greenhouse Ministries has the goal to help, educate and connect every client who walks through the door. Clients are never asked income questions, and services are not based on employment status or religious views. Services are open to anyone regardless of race, color, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, veteran status, or national or ethnic origin. The goal is to serve whoever walks through the doors with love and respect.

After 25 years of serving the community, Greenhouse Ministries has grown from a facility of 5,000 square feet to a facility of over 11,000 square feet. We are continuing to grow, and it is only because of God’s great plan for us, and the support of many people who believe in that plan with us!


Greenhouse Ministries, through local volunteers, provides relational ministries that are designed to inspire, give hope, and change lives.
